Keeping the Cloud SafeProofpoint, Inc. (PFPT – Research Report) is a small-cap digital security company in California, providing SaaS products for inbound and outbound email security and data loss prevention, as well as digital risk management, email encryption and archiving, and regulatory compliance. Proofpoint was founded in 2002, and has since grown popular with Fortune 100 companies, counting more than half as customers. A Blockbuster QuarterIn the April 25 earnings call, Proofpoint decisively beat the Street’s estimates. Reported quarterly revenues were $203 million against an expected $200, and more impressively, up 25% from Q1 of 2018. EPS performance was even better, with the 40 cents reported outperforming the estimate by over 17% and like revenues, growing year-over-year by 25%.Cash flow was also impressive. Proofpoint reported operating cash flow at $54.1 million for the quarter, and free cash flow of $48.6 million. Free cash flow was 24% of total revenues, well in line with management’s goals. The revenue, EPS, and cash flow beats were supported by strong subscription growth. New accounts powered a 26% jump in subscription income, to $199.6 million. This is probably Proofpoint’s most important metric, as SaaS subscriptions account for 98.3% of all revenues. International customers accounted for 19% of that total, while the company’s remaining hardware and services customers provided the remaining quarterly revenue of $3.4 million.Company CEO Gary Steele said of Proofpoint’s Q1 performance, “Our overall business momentum remained strong, driven by the demand for next generation cloud security and compliance platform, the ongoing migration to the cloud, and our unique visibility into the rapidly evolving threat landscape.” Looking AheadIn the near term, the company is expecting to see $211 million in Q2 revenues. The full-year guidance was just as rosy as the earnings. After so clearly beating quarterly expectations, PFPT raised the bar for 2019, boosting full-year revenue guidance to $878 to $878 million. Management’s confidence was visible in the company’s forecast of 20% revenue growth and free cash margins 22% to 26% for the year.Going back to CEO Steele, he also commented Proofpoint’s immediate prospects, saying, “Adopting a people-based approach to cyber security has become an imperative for security teams around the world, and Proofpoint is uniquely positioned to deliver it by combining our excellence in email security and threat intelligence with our broadening product suite across email, cloud and web properties.” A Possible Dark Cloud?In all of the good news about Proofpoint, there was one possible negative. The company’s cash-on-hand – total cash and cash equivalents available – dropped 6.5% from last quarter. This could simply be an ordinary fluctuation in the cash flow, but it could also be an early indicator of a cash burn. Proofpoint’s share price dropped by 5% after the earnings report, despite the upbeat earnings and revenue numbers. Did investors sense a cash issue? What the Analysts are SayingExcept that the market’s top analysts are decidedly bullish on PFPT shares. The company has a ‘Strong Buy’ consensus, based on 13 buys ratings and 2 holds given in the last three months – and of those, one hold is over a month old while all 13 buys came right after the Q1 report. The average price target of $138 is also bullish, as it indicated an 11% upside from the current share price.View PFPT Price Target & Analyst Rating DetailWriting from Evercore ISI, five-star analyst Kirk Materne (Track Record & Ratings) wrote, “We view this quarter’s results and accompanying guidance as evidence of continued execution. Further management’s target of 20%+ revenue growth combined with mid-20’s% FCF margins longer- term suggests the company will continue to see the exponential FCF ramp typical of SaaS companies.” Materne’s comments are typical of the bullish stance Wall Street has taken on this stock in recent days.No good success story is complete without a word of caution, and that is supplied by Oppenheimer’s Shaul Eyal (Track Record & Ratings). Eyal expresses his caution toward this stock with a ‘hold’ rating, although his comments are rather upbeat: “PFPT exceeded 1Q19 revenue, EPS… and upped FY19 revenue and billings guidance by ~$4M. EPS of $0.40 exceeded the $0.34E consensus, and guidance was exceeded regardless. We believe that accelerating cloud adoption, coupled with a rapid adoption of PFPT’s emerging products, underscores the solid and consistent performance…”Enjoy the Research Report on the Stock in this Article:Find out more about Proofpoint, and get the latest in-depth analyst data on the company, from the TipRanks research report.Proofpoint, Inc.
